Well isn’t that a headline for ya? Hot on the heels of yesterdays speculation that the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus would launch after the European November 17th launch date we have more information pointing to a later launch for the U.S. Droid-life is reporting that the Galaxy Nexus is scheduled in Verizons internal systems for a post Black Friday launch date.

As we noted yesterday this could be a horrible idea for Verizon from a release standpoint but also a slightly understandable launch strategy because of the Droid RAZR and the HTC Rezound. Verizon has stacked up a lot of high-end devices for the Holiday push this year so it’s hard to schedule all of them with enough time to capitalize on their sales while getting all of them in before the buying season is over.

Hopefully this isn’t a sign of other issues with the device and it’s strictly a marketing play.
